Amax in AR-15

I know this isnt exactly a hunting type question, but I though I might find someone with some experience in this:

Anyone shoot 75gr amax in their AR15?

I want to use Varget. Any recipes? Any cycling problems?

Also, what are the published min/max loads for Varget? OAL?

Trying to work up something nice for high power competition. Have a friend who's stuck on trying 75 amax and varget in his AR and I am trying to help. Thanks.

    You need tighter than a 1:9 to get good results. The only way I have seen anyone get good results with a 1:9 is by pushing them hard!!!
